The richly-deep sonorous voice rang out across the sea of anony-
mity, composed of 103,210 faceless, nameless units of humanity (25
less that the record):
"Will U.P.I. correspondent Dave Weir please report to the press
I was standing outside the gate of the Stadium unable to obtain
press identification, and therefore unable to enter the press box.
Other notable rejects lingering around the press entrance
included Soapy (G. Mennen) Williams-who existed from 14 to
2 B. R. (Before Romney). Perhaps he too was unable tp obtain ID,
but they didn't page him.
The former head of state was clad in a traditionally-flashy
suit and a traditionally green-and-white polkadot tie.
As he was standing outside the gate, less than half of the passing
faces noticed him at all,dand a much smaller percentage stopped long
enough to shake his hand.
The entire scene reminded me of the late show tragedies in which
'he fallen political god ends up standing in the rain without an
Meanwhile, back at the ball park, I was still waiting out by the
gate, and the Big Voice was calling me inside. The main reason for
the paging was my incapability to get where I belonged without iden-
The main reason for my inability to get to where I was being
paged was my lack of identification to get where I belonged.
For three years I'd been listening to that Big Voice, calling
out the names and numbers of various celebrities. Like, "Will
doctor number 319657 call nurse 662244 immediately?"
For three years, my greatest dream was to hear my number
echoing out across the Big Bowl. "Will 9577885 please call nurse
662244?' (Of course, since they've changed the ID cards, it'd
have to be: "Will 374-50-6596-0 please call .. .
And then, on that warm, sunny Saturday it happened. And he
didn't even use my number; he called out my actual name. -
It sort of would've made it all worth while. You know, all those
cards and forms and blanks with the space for my number; all those
long lines and big lecture halls and feelings of powerlessness, of
alienation from Window A ..
... all those times the sweet corrupted voice of the raggedy lady
behind the desk said "Are you sure your forms are correct?" three
months before the note in the mail said "We regret to inform you
that your forms came back . . . there must have been some error .
.... all those times the girl at the registration impasse said
"You'll have to go to 203 Administration Building," where they then
said "You'll have to go down to room 114," where they only had
A-L and said "Yours are in room 117" where they sent you to
Window A, which only held a sign which said "Next window
please" which meant punt .. .
... it might have been worth all of that if I'd only heard the
Big Voice. gut unfortunately the loudspeaker system doesn't carry

Why should you,
confide in a guy
you've never met
Because the guy we're talking
about is a college recruiter from
Alcoa. And the only way to play it
He'll be on campus in a couple of
days. And here's what we recom-
mend you do at the interview.
First, lay your cards on the table.

into Alcoa's plans. (You'll be
surprised how versatile

recruiter. He's a confidence man
you can really trust.
